Naked City Pizza



Although the menu is stacked with Buffalo, New York-style pizzas, don’t overlook the fact that Naked City Pizza chef and owner Chris Palmeri came from a fine-dining background. With pop-up dinners and weekly specials, Palmeri has so much more than just pizza coming out of his kitchen. Just follow the restaurant’s Facebook feed to find out when he’s doing Fish Fry Fridays, braised pork cheeks with a sunny-side-up egg, red wine-braised short ribs or whatever else strikes his fancy.
